Compiled by more than 400 experts, the Encyclopedia of Soil Science, Second Edition covers all branches of soil science including pedology, mineralogy, physics, soil mechanics, hydrology, chemistry, biology, ecology and management, and restoration of problem/degraded soils. Thematic topics dealing with soil management address numerous challenges including soil structure, tillage methods and mulch farming, irrigation, drainage and water table management, fertilizer and nutrient management, erosion control, and management of soil organic matter. Entries are alphabetically arranged, and subject and author indices are available for easy access.
Upholding the high standard of quality set by the previous edition, this two-volume second edition offers a vast array of recent peer-reviewed articles. It showcases research and practices with added sections on ISTIC-World Soil Information, root growth and agricultural management, nitrate leaching management, podzols, paramos soils, water repellant soils, rare earth elements, and more. With hundreds of entries covering tillage, irrigation, erosion control, ground water, and soil degradation, the book offers quick access to all branches of soil science, from mineralology and physics, to soil management, restoration, and global warming. It is also available in an online version.
